The ubiquitous bacterial RNA-binding protein Hfq is involved in stress resistance and pathogenicity. In Sinorhizobium meliloti, Hfq is essential for the establishment of symbiosis with Medicago sativa and for nitrogen fixation. A proteomic analysis identifies 55 proteins with significantly affected expression in the hfq mutant; most of them are involved in(More)
There exist commonalities between symbiotic Sinorhizobium meliloti and pathogenic Brucella bacteria in terms of extensive gene synteny and the requirements for intracellular survival in their respective hosts. The RNA chaperone Hfq is essential for virulence for several bacterial groups, including Brucella; however, its role in S. meliloti has not been(More)
